Bossier City apartment complex holds lemonade stand fundraiser to benefit children with cancer
BOSSIER CITY, La. (KSLA) - A special fundraiser was held Friday, Aug. 12 to help affect change in the lives of children with cancer.
Morgan Properties, the owner and operator of Stockwell Landing Apartment Homes in Bossier City, held its annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand fundraiser Friday. Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is “changing the lives of children with cancer by funding impactful research, raising awareness, supporting families, and empowering everyone to help cure childhood cancer,” according to the foundation’s website.
Alexandra Scott, or Alex, is remembered every year through this fundraiser. Each of these stands gives out free lemonade but accepts donations that go towards child cancer patient research and treatment.
When Alex passed in 2004, her mother decided that she wanted to continue to fight for Alex’s cause. She founded the organization just a year later and spread the support nationwide.
